Pom Pom Quarterly Issue 29
Issue 29 Pom Pom is all about the summer!
The nine designs in this issue were inspired by ceramic tiles, terracotta, and sand, so expect earthy shades with splashes of colour and organic, repeating patterns. For your summer wardrobe, we have essential summer tops and tees, a cardigan, a shawl, and a crochet bag – all light and breezy for warmer days.
This issue also has added pages, meaning more room for the gorgeous photography, an increased font size, and a wider range of sizes for some patterns (with the aim for all patterns in future issues).

This issue includes an interview with Emi Ito, who answers questions of creativity and misappropriation. ‘Learning and Unlearning’ unpicks the issues of cultural appropriation and diversity.
There are also yarn-free based projects to enjoy while the sun shines. If you’re on the lookout for a new craft to try, there is a project bag tutorial by artist Arrounna Khounnoraj, of Bookhou. She’ll show you how to block-print your own fabric, perfect for creating your own tile-inspired tessellating patterns! Plus Rebecca Lawrence’s recipe for her Maple Bourbon Fudge is an easy way to whip up an impressive sweet treat to share with friends.
Printed in the UK on lovely heavy paper.
